with republicans wanting to flex their muscle on foreign policy. they haven't had many victories in terms of a lot of foreign policy, a lot of their policies have been discreditted by what we have seen over the last years in terms of the prosecution of the war on terror. so i think that's it. but i also think obama didn't do himself any favors by picking hagel. in some ways he's the only guy that wants hagel. democrats are not that excited about having hagel there. republicans are not happy. they want to drag it out. chris: what are you hearing from your reporters? >> i think that's right. the sense is he will be confirmed but there's still more time so we don't know what could happen. something new could come out. >> absolutely. >> change. chris: i think there may be a brilliant strategy. slow it down, slow it down, hope something breaks. bad news comes out of the woodwork. let's talk about something coming up on the subject of the march 1 showdown known as sequester. you wrote your new e-book called "here's the deal" in part, quote, democrats have gone on record as accepting a much longer list o
from the president last night. i didn't hear a new initiative in foreign policy. i didn't hear a new initiative on domestic policy. i heard 20-some odd programs that won't cost a dime, sounded like a candy rock mountain to me, which i learned does not exist. were you surprised? >> that was a new proposal at least, but i'm not surprised or disappointed. i think -- lou: i love a happy american. >> he's doubling down on a liberal agenda should not be a surprise to anybody, especially you, lou. lou: well, i maintain my unanimity, objectivity, and, always, my hope, of course. we're going to change the subject very quickly. we're going to come back to why is the president, why did he decide to make israel -- interesting, the first trip, first foreign trip of his second term? the a-team has some skeptical outlook, i would say, critical judgments they apply on these things, well, judy does on foreign policy,nyway, not necessarily the minimum wage. back with the a-team in moments. stay with us. lou: back with the a-team, and i do want to turn, first, to the response. senator rubio, as i point
through a list of other issues from energy to manufacturing, touched on foreign policy and at the end reached, i think it's fair to say, an emotional crescendo when he talked about gun violence in america and recognized a number of individuals there in the house chamber who have been touched by gun violence. either they're the survivors, surviving family members or who themselves have been victims of gun violence. mark, we were counting, i think, as he went through... i know i made some notes. almost a dozen new initiatives the president announced on everything from international trade to higher education to doing something about the voting experience in america. it seemed like the president was trying to inject some energy into his second term. >> i agree wu, judy. i just want to underline the emotional apex of the evening was undoubtedly the "deserve a vote" chant that the president led when he spoke on gun control and the need, making the argument that our police departments were outgunned by those with assault weapons with criminal intent. and i thought that a speech that quite fr
swayinger right now and a lot of confidence. and forepolicy, he's kind of outsourced foreign policy in the first term. he's insourcing it back in the whitehouse again. this is his foreign policy and he's running into controversy over the drone program right now. this is a foreign policy national security team that is much more implementers and not super stars in their own right. barack obama has got ownership. he doesn't seem to support the kind of cast he had four years ago. >> rose: mark halperin when you looked at the possibilities of dealing with republicans especially the sequester question, is there some sense that the administration kneeling confident has pulled it off? >> i'm more pessimistic about it than i've been since probably the president took office. these other issues -- >> rose: since he was re-elected. >> no, since he took office. put these other issues on the table. gun control and climate change. i don't think there's any chance of those move until and unless he gets a fiscal deal in part because the traffic won't bear other big big things. and also because i d
. "state of the union" address tonight and foreign policy will not be the focus of the "state of the union" address, probably, but it will come up. tonight the president is dealing with the first major foreign policy crisis of the second term. north korea has conducted a third nuclear test. with the apparent goal of obtaining a warhead that could threaten the u.s. chief washington correspondent james rosen at the state department on today's test. >> the test was conducted in a safe and perfect way, on a high level with the use of a smaller and light a-bomb, unlike priest ones, yet with great explosion i power. all that and the alarming claim of min neurodevice that couldn't confirmed appeared to be true. in an emergency morning session, the-up security council went through what the u.n. ambassador susan rice called the usual drill. >> we and others have a number of further measures we will be discussing with the council members in various spheres that will not only tighten the existing measures but we aim to augment the sanctions regime that is quite strong, as implemented in 1874 and 208
to do it. on foreign policy, america is indispensable to liberty. and the world is a better place when america is the strongest nation on earth, but we can't remain powerful if we don't have an economy that can afford it. in the storm tihort time i've bn washington nothing frustrates me more than what the president laid out tonight. the choices aren't just big government and big business we need an accountable and efficient big government that allows small and new businesses to create middle class jobs, we don't have to raise taxes to avoid the devastating cuts to the military. republicans passed a plan that replaces these cuts with responsible spending reforms, and in order to balance our budget, the choice doesn't have to be either higher taxes or dramatic benefit cuts for those in need. instead we should grow our economy so we can create new taxpayers, not new taxes. and so, our government can afford to help those truly cannot help themselves. and the truth is, every problem can't be solved by the government. many are caused by the moral breakdown in our society. and the answer to t
afghanistan is part of foreign policy but on the other hand, troop withdrawal is controversial issue and in afghanistan there's concern of what is going to happen with the pursuing of the peace process. there's hopes and concerns as well. i want to be part of hope for my country. i know there are challenges and one day i might be assassinated but it's a choice i made for myself. >> jon: inspiring one and incredibly brave one. enough time we'll good to commercial and we'll talk more about the complexities ant dueality of living in afghanistan and the difficulty as you go through there. very, very nice to have you on the show. fawzia koofi, "the favored daughter." you she had gut this and readit it
foreign policy record. which is worse? >> i tell you one thing, i think boehner has his own internal problems and that he shouldn't run out there and get in the president's way because in doing that he's getting in the american people's way. i think it's time that people want to see us go above party and think in terms of our country. i think they're exhausted at the partisan politics and now is the time to rembuild america and moe forward. >> i thought it was speaker bain mother didn't have the guts to do a grand bargain deal with the president because he was frightened of eric cantor in 2011. now he's saying it's the president who doesn't have the guts. i mean, this is total revisionism, isn't it? >> well, you can see that boehner wants everyone to respond to the president, the tea party, the republican party. if there was a moderate part of the republican party, i guess there will be a chance to respond, too. i don't really think that boehner is speaking for the american people or the republicans for that matter. i think that he is trying to keep these primaries -- tea party prima
and unemployment, he is completely wrong or during the hearings when he was talking about foreign policy. he sounded like he had no idea how these things actually work even though the words sounded very lovely all mixed together like that. >> rick, i think part of that maybe perhaps is that you can't actually tie yourself to specific policy in the current republican party. i mean, the thing about -- the difference between barack obama and hillary clinton is that they really weren't that far apart in terms of actual policy. there were a few measurable differences that were -- a lot of hay was made out of them, but fundamentally it wasn't that the democratic party was going through the same sort of, you know, analysis on the couch that the republican party is. >> the point is the strategy on how each one of them sort of had this crescendo in their popularity. it wasn't -- i'm not speaking to the two, but when hillary was first in the senate, she was very careful and methodical about how she rolled herself out. same thing with barack obama. knew that he came in as a big star, but knew that he n
a speech done now for days to react to the events of overnight? >> usually they have a foreign policy section and i think they'll add it. and, you know, usually they find a way to work in foreign policy and go in that section and it's -- you know, these speeches are, you know, the structure of them is done a long time in advance but they'll still being worked on until the last minute. >> absolutely. and also, we know through the latest developments today, the president will announce 34,000 troops leaving afghanistan, as well. another part of the puzzle if you will of us learning when's in that speech. what i'm curious about your opinion on, our first read team says there are three economic questions that the president will perhaps answer tonight. one of them is how can the united states create more jobs at home. when the speech outline is happening, are you guys talking about these are the questions people are asking at home. mr. president, this is how to answer. is it that kind of set-up? >> well, you know, usually you start out i think by, you know, the president and his speechwrite
house did during the benghazi attack. he told "foreign policy" magazine, quote, we need to know what the president's conversations were. i would vote no on cloture on thursday unless the information is provided. by tuesday -- actually by yesterday, which almost every day of the week he's changed his mind, the white house had responded to his satisfaction, but he still didn't vote for cloture. he still wouldn't vote to bring this matter of hagel's confirmation up to a vote, and here is his latest. let's watch. >> there are still questions outstanding. i believe that senators have the right to have those questions answered. the senator from south carolina and the senator from new hampshire and i had a response from the president today on the question that we had, but there are other questions. >> like can you give us a copy of every speech you ever gave? can you give us a dollar-for-dollar assessment of every dollar you ever made? by the way, if you don't tell us, we're going to accuse you of getting money from the north koreans. that's the way we will pay you. joy, you're younger than

, this is 2016, lining it up, foreign policy experience, sitting down with bb, the whole thing. >> well, it's true. and there are a number of boxes that one has to check if they're going to head in that direction. and i might note, on the democratic side of the aisle, here's the former secretary of state now going off on a limited speaking tour. so it seems perhaps that they're at logger heads, and time will tell. >> it's an interesting time, though. but a lot of press from marco rubio this weekend. that's for sure. thanks for joining me. >>> president obama is expected to go all-in to help elect house democrats come 2014. politico describing the president's early commitments as, quote, unprecedented and transformational. coming up, more on the democrats' possible plan to retake the house and what republicans may be doing to make sure they stay in control. >>> plus -- >> i could not believe that he would say something like that. and to a baby. or about a baby. and then to hit him was just -- i -- i felt like i was in another world. i was shaking. >> have you heard about this story? that's t

amendment rights of law-abiding americans is not the way to do it. on foreign policy, america continues to be indispensable to the global liberty, property and safeguarding human rights. the world is a better place when america is the strongest nation on earth. but we can't remain powerful if we don't have an economy that can afford it. in the short time that i've been here in washington, nothing has frustrated me more than false choices like the one the president laid out tonight. choice isn't just between big government or big business what we need is an efficient and effective government that allows new businesses to create more middle-class jobs. we don't have to raise taxes to avoid the president's devastating cuts to our military. republicans have passed a plan that replaces these cuts with responsible spending reform reforms. in order to balance our budget, the choice doesn't have to be either higher taxes or dramatic benefit cuts for those in need instead we should grow our economy so we can create new taxpayers, not new taxes so our government can afford to help those who can t
